A kitchen plumbing layout typically includes the following:
- A main water supply line: This brings water into the kitchen from the main water supply line.
- A shut-off valve: This allows you to turn off the water supply to the kitchen in case of a leak or other emergency.
- A sink drain: This carries water and waste from the sink to the main drain line.
- A dishwasher drain: This carries water and waste from the dishwasher to the main drain line.
- A garbage disposal: This grinds up food waste and sends it to the main drain line.
- A vent pipe: This allows air to flow in and out of the drain lines, helping to prevent blockages.
- A gas supply line: This brings gas to the stove and oven.
- Water supply lines for refrigerator and ice maker
It’s important to note that the specific layout and components may vary depending on the local building codes and the specific design of the kitchen.
